Jindal Films Americas (JFA) is relocating its US Research and Development (R&D) Center and its national headquarters to its LaGrange facility in Troup County, Georgia with an investment of $180 Million.
As part of the investment, there will be an overall footprint development including additional orientation, metalizing, coating and slitting capabilities. A world-class 10.5m orientation line will be installed by Q4, 2016, increasing capacity by more than 50,000 tons per year and further improving production flexibility. The Metallizer is expected to start-up in Q3, 2016 and will add 10,000 tons of metallization capacity.
The relocation will create 240 new jobs. To support this consolidation, JFA will expand its existing facility.
JFA currently operates two film manufacturing facilities and a combined headquarters and R&D Center in the US. They currently employ 500 personnel in the US, 200 of which are already located in LaGrange.
